The last track on the album which plays during the scene when the surviving native boys and girls departure from the remains of their tribes, masscared by european invaders.

2) Casualties of War
The end title music (first track on the album) is the perfect ending for the almost ubereable attrocities depicted in the movie. When the choral enters, sounds like all mankind is crying in despair.

Yes, "Once Upon a Time in America"'s scene where old Noodles goes back in time while looking through the old hole in the wall is just heartbreaking...

The main theme from Le Serpent (Night Flight from Moscow), but it is impossible to single out Morricone's hearthbreaking music to less than several dozen themes. Can't be done.

Here’s one that often gets overlooked. It’s from a 1972 film The Children Ask Us Why

Just remembered...

"Ricordare", the end song performed by Gerard Depardieu in "A Pure Formality" when Onoff finally discovers that he was, well (SPOILER!), dead...

I always cry on this one.

Ricordare has always been one of my favourites as well. BAARIA has some lovely moments too.

He has done so many heartbreakingly beautiful pieces. Here is a great example:

Oh, a great one! When this music plays under the last scene of the movie preceded by all those grim score and similarly grim scenes - it brings tears in the eyes every time...

The most heartbreaking moment that he scored – for me – is the death scene for Jason Robards in “Once Upon a Time in the West.” The jaunty, jangling, repetitive theme for the character, Cheyenne, has been used in the film so many times that we anticipate each phrase rather like a beloved, quirky nursery rhyme.

In the death scene, Cheyenne is crunched over in agony on the ground after having been shot, and it is apparent that he is dying an agonizing death. He has a conversation with the Charles Bronson character, Harmonica, trying to die with some dignity. His theme is jiggering away in the background and coming to the final phrase that we’ve grown to expect whenever his character is present. Robards is taking rasping breaths. Then, in a heartbreaking, sublime moment, the theme pauses for that final phase and for Robards to take another breath, and just...stops. He slumps over dead. No more music. It gets me every time. Such a brilliant use of a character motif. He was a genius.

I'd have to say the track entitled Poverty from Once Upon A Time In America.

Um I have to say that as a collector of well over 1000 Records and 15000. CDs. The list of composers goes on forever. I have never really liked any of Morricone's music. The conveyor belt output. Quality sacrificed for Quantity. And the 'western' music. Frankly. Bores me.
